LAS VEGAS (AP) — Candidates running for office in Nevada are making a concerted effort to reach out to Nevada's growing Asian-American and Pacific Islander community with the hope that those voters will swing tight races in the battleground state.
The national Republican Party hired two new Asian American staffers as the first part of an outreach effort to the Asian community. This comes on the heels of an election in which more than 70 percent of Asian American voters picked President Barack Obama. Can the GOP woo some of these voters? Or is the demographic becoming reliably Democratic?
